We thought we had the AFIB under control then I went to Bradycardia my heart rate was super low.
It ranged from 42 to 46 beats per minute. What this does it make you feel cold inside your body like you are standing in a freezer. There’s not much blood moving at all.
I saw the cardio on Friday but he had me quit the Amioderane before I saw him.
I started a new script Warfarin to prevent blood clots.
I will see a heart valve specialist at Baylor/ St Lukes’s/ Texas Heart Institute next week.
This will see if I am a candidate for valvoplasty this is to get the AFIB under control. Evidently, my mitral valve is very small it’s stenotic. This makes my atrium very large and this causes too much blood to pool it is like flooding out the atrium and flooding my lungs.
It seems that the AFIB will continue and get worse each time this happens.
I am grateful we are outside of Houston and have access to some of the best Drs in the world. My current cardiologist has always listened to me and my concerns he is a great Dr.
Over the next few weeks there will be a lot more testing on my heart they have to make sure this will do me some good.
I will update you when I have more information to share.
